Event description

Description

Islands Folk Festival Artistic Director Kelly Nakatsuka brought Oliver Swain and Eli West together for the first time in 2018, the chemistry and comfort was instantaneous. Their set brought the house down and moments after that first show while chatting backstage, 'Across the Haro Strait' was born.

Eli West is a Seattle-based acoustic musician. Known for his solo work and collaborations with BC’s top Mandolin player John Reischman, Norwegian fiddler Olav Mjelva, Cahalen Morrison, and more, the singer and multi-instrumentalist oozes understated talent.

‘Making music the world needs’ – Tim O’Brien

‘West is an artist overflowing with ideas and music’ – Green Man Review

‘Eli West is an exceptional singer, guitar player and musician, really deep stuff’ – Martin Simpson

"I had such a wonderful time playing music with Eli West...” - Bill Frisell
